JIT saves wharehousing space and therefore money right up till something goes wrong.
Then it can be a nightmare.
Warehousing used to be the price of the insurance policy which business no longer wishes to pay. Bit like not insuring your house then wondering what to do when it burns down.

JIT came from Japan and is used worldwide
I think you will find that the Just In Time concept was first introduced by the BMC in the 1950s.
 
So you do not.

Considering he was called out by a Mod, I think that's sufficient. But the point of the thread is about the EU - I said it's a shame we are leaving the EMA, because of the implications for the future of our pharma industry.

Then a walt para who sells aspirin comes along and says it'll be fine, better in fact, and then he receives many high fives from people who only care that he disagrees with the EU.

Leave it alone because it's preference is to play 'ad hom' which is typical of most trolls.
A troll, you say?? Surely not! He claims to have a PhD.... although unusually for a PhD, he doesn't post particularly convincing arguments or even well researched thoughts. In fact most of it seems to be cut and pasted, plagiarised drivel in the style of a semi-literate 16-year-old. Why would someone lie about having a PhD?
 
I’m pointing out that someone who lied about having served in the paras might not be the most truth worthy source when it comes to claiming Cancer Research is wrong.
A liar? Not truth worthy?
That's you in a nutshell.

Nice to see you're well Bob.

Any way back to whats next for the EU, if Brexit is judged a success then 38% of Italians would vote to leave, rather ominous and this is before the huge cuts & debt coming.


Italy would be the most likely of the "Big Four" member states to consider exiting the European Union if Brexit proves to be beneficial to Britain, according to a Euronews-commissioned poll.
The $hit has yet to hit the proverbial in the EU.
  1. The impact of austerity has yet to hit - fiscally prudent northern Europe will be insisting profligate Cub Med makes cutbacks in public services and payroll in return for loans/etc to dig them out of the financial mire they're in. It remains to be see how Italy and Spain react to attempts to force Greek style austerity on them.
  2. The predictable reaction of the EU to the current Covid 19 crisis will be to use it to try and quicken the pace towards a USE. It also remains to be seen how individual countries will react to attempts to strip them of further sovereignty.
The picture will only become clearer when the above hits. But it's clear the EU (and euro) is going to look very different in a couple of years time. And it's difficult to see those changes happening without major political and financial fractures in the EU.

That is not the purpose of JIT. The purpose is to expose problems - which can then be addressed.

Simplistic example: a machine is unreliable, so a stock of finished parts is held the other side; if the machine breaks down the finished parts are used until the machine is repaired. In time the purpose of the stockpile of parts is forgotten and it becomes institutionalised. And the unreliable machine fades from management consciousness.

If you reduce the stockpile of finished parts, the next time the machine breaks down, downstream production stops as the supply of parts dries up. Management is then reminded of the unreliable machine.

If the machine is then properly repaired - or replaced - production runs more efficiently and there is no longer a need for a stock of parts at that point in the production process.

Rinse and repeat through out the production process. Slowly lower level of stock, expose problem, address problem, further lower stock. The ideal JIT process (often unattainable) is only one part at every stage of the production process. Which means every possible problem has been eliminated and the process is now as efficient as it can be.

(Greatly over simplified, but you'll get the idea).

Because I disagree with an aspirin seller who falsely claims to be ex-para (and has been outed on the site), also now claims he knows more about drug trials/EMA than Cancer Research?

Funny how the site has changed since Brexit don’t you think - years ago walts were chased off the site. Now they’re welcomed with open arms as long as they post positive things about Brexit.
I’m pointing out that someone who lied about having served in the paras might not be the most truth worthy source when it comes to claiming Cancer Research is wrong.
Does it matter that he’s lied about having served? Surely the most important thing is that he supports Brexit?
It's freely available on the site to view - but the point is, he supports Brexit - so that's all that matters on the site now.
Nice to see you're well Bob.
